Grandma Brown’s Frozen Custard

Grandma Brown’s Frozen Custard

When I was growing up my grandma used to cook and bake all of the time.  I was the baker in the family with Grandma.  Before she passed away, she hand wrote her recipes for me and I am going to share them with you.  Some of them are left up for interpretation so I will do my best.

This one is a family favorite...especially of my father. Dad loved her frozen custard. Cool and refreshing on a summer day. A bit tart and sweet at the same time. It is definitely one of my favorites too.
